Breast Cancer Action has always been a radical cancer organization—from our founders to our ever-growing community of fierce, persistent activists. That’s because women’s bodies and women’s health have always been social justice issues. As activists across the country are calling for justice and demanding change, Breast Cancer Action is leading the #CancerResistance!
The country is at a crossroads, and people across the country are calling for social justice as part of a broad and powerful growing movement. #MeToo is pushing back on patriarchy and entrenched misogyny. #BlackLivesMatter is shining a light on police violence and racism. #NeverAgain is changing the conversation about gun violence. With your support, Breast Cancer Action is challenging the cancer industry as we lead the #CancerResistance.
Our work has never been more important than it is right now. Work that matters for the millions of people who are living with and at risk of breast cancer. Work that can’t be separated from the larger push for social justice. Work that makes sure women’s health never gets sidelined.
Your gift is more important than ever and funds our vital grassroots activism.
DONATE TODAY and we’ll send you your own “This is What the Cancer Resistance Looks Like” sticker.
Thanks to the support of donors and members like you, we’re fighting the cancer industry—the interconnected web of corporations that profit from and contribute to the disease while working hand in hand with multi-million dollar nonprofits to raise billions in the name of breast cancer.
And we’ve shown again and again that when people like you and me join together to demand a better world, we can and we do win, against the odds.
There’s a lot that needs to change right now to address and end the breast cancer epidemic. And I can assure you, we will persist, until lives and communities aren’t threatened by breast cancer! So much is at stake. Please donate today and join the #CancerResistance.
